About the Teacher
Grade 12 English
The short stories unit will consist of the students being able to read, comprehend, and analyze short stories. They will compare these to greater themes and topics as well as to non-fiction articles. We will be using a website called newsela.com to do this.
Every student is also responsible for having an independent reading book with them each class. I am working to frame my units around the senior project. Students will get practice with research, citations, writing, speaking, and presenting - all of which lead toward their final product, paper, and presentation.
This is a regents course with required lab minutes. In order to even sit for the regents exam, students must complete and pass at least 1200 minutes of lab work. We will exceed this in class, but if they miss labs it is very important to make these up!
